Paper Smooches & GlueArts for Gift Tags & Bags!

This is it!

It's our final day to share our Paper Smooches and GlueArts projects with you!

And believe's one amazing of a finale! (if we may say so myself!)

First though...a sincere thank you to Kim Hughes and her team at Paper Smooches! If you have not had time this week to visit the Paper Smooches blog, we highly recommend you do! Thank you to Kim for her sponsoring ship of our GlueArts Glue Girls team! 

And speaking of Glue Girls...wait till you see what Designer Lisa Day and Grace Tolman have for you today!

Grace hand stamped and made her own gift bag! Love this idea...and you could take it one step further and make a matching card or tag too! What about a hand stamped paper bow!

Lisa has two of the most  beautiful gift tags truly we have seen! Love the soft colors, layered elements and the sweet, hand-stamped sentiments!
